This river runs through Florence on an East/West line, bisecting the city. Fewer tourists tend to flock to the southern side, whereas the northern side is heavily congested. There is a walkway along side the river, or you can just walk along the roads that...More

The Arno River is supposedly the most important river of central Italy after the Tiber, bisecting Florence. The river flooded Florence in earlier days but most recently in 1966 after heavy rainfall. The flow rate of the Arno is irregular. It can easily go from...More

We stayed close to the river when in Florence, and it really is a beauty to look at. Unfortunately no stunning sunsets when we were there in November, but what I liked is how still it is. Lots of photo opportunities both during the day...More

This is a body of water running through the centre of Florence. Great for taking photographs and getting your bearings, but not a place for you to sit next to as there are no bars/cafes/restaurants which would enable you to see it. Busy roads run...More
